Pic of the DaY


I am short on info about this one. I reckon that is Vin Denson powering along on the front with Bill Bradley second. That said I don’t recall seeing Billy wearing a crash hat before.

    I would say without any doubt that Bill Bradley is behind Vin Denson, They were both local to me in their early days and I became a very good friend of Bill.

    • I am now advised that the “fan” shouting encouragement is none other than double world champion Norman Sheil and the rider taking a drink is the late Ken Hill. Not many dummies in that group! I now think the race is on the King’s Gardens, Southport, not really Billy’s cup of tea at all but he wasn’t only a climber in his later years. If the race really is at Southport there is a strong possibility that Brian “Pee Wee” Pearson was on the start line. BTW the photo was taken by Jackie Lowe, past Merseyside champion.
